New Republican Gov. Mike Pence is following through with the pay raises his predecessor promised to about 90 percent of Indiana's state employees.
Pence announced that a total of $38 million in raises -- a 3.1 percent increase on average for the 26,000 workers who qualify will show up on this week's pay checks.
The raises are based on employees' performance. About one out of every 20 workers earned "outstanding" evaluations and will receive 8 percent raises.
The one in 10 whose reviews said they "exceed expectations" got 5 percent pay bumps. And the 75 percent of state workers who met expectations received an extra 3 percent.
The remaining 10 percent who fell short of expectations did not receive raises.
